Curriculum Statement

At St Andrew’s C E Primary School we make our curriculum as engaging and relevant to the children as we can. Whilst following the National Curriculum, we ensure that the specific content of our lessons is relevant to the needs of our children and draws upon their own experiences as much as possible.


As far as possible, we aim for English, Maths, Science and ICT to be embedded within all curriculum areas, reinforcing the basic skills that children need to develop in order to make their way in the world. All curriculum areas  need  to support the development of the basic skills and contribute to our aim of a quality Breadth and Balance provision.


At the heart of our curriculum sit the children – giving them an exciting and inspirational start to their school life, preparing them for the future. Mental Health issues and exploring diversity is intended to be clear in all subject areas.


The expectations for all children is to reach each subjects (core and foundation)  non negotiables as a starter and be working at age related expectations or above by the end of the academic year.
